Gary Vaynerchuk “Mortified” and Says it’s his Fault as CEO of VaynerMedia for Sexist Cannes Party Email Invite

About 13 hours or so in Cannes Cindy Gallop sent out this tweet asking Gary Vaynerchuk what is up with the sexist “attractive females only” invite for VaynerMedia and Thrillist’s party in Cannes.

Gary Vaynerchuk quickly responded via Twitter Video as he has before to put more clarification and context around people questioning him.

He said in his Twitter Video reply to the sexist email that went out that..

“Cindy thank you so much and I’m mortified.. I’m… Listen at the end of the day when you are the CEO any production teams or people you work with you hire it’s your fault so I’m really upset I don’t know the details yet but I’ll find out and I appreciate you calling out the issue. I wish you well, Thank you”

Then after that people still tried calling Gary out and here are his replies on Twitter..

And just recently in the last hour or so another person just Tweeted another invite (which they say is fake in their tweet) with the same “selected female invite only” language and Gary is trying to find the source of that one as you can see here.. And Adweek talks about the incident and his apology here.

On top of that the company that it was tracked to be outsourced to “Igetin.com” site has blocked all traffic from it’s site. We tested with proxies from the US and France and still get “forbidden” no matter what IP is used.
